Both Matoses had a strong odor of alcohol, according to Grimes’ report. Moises Matos did take a Breathalyzer test and had a reading of .232, almost three times the level that presumes a person is intoxicated, Grimes wrote.
In separate interviews, both men claimed the alleged victim jumped from the vehicle. They also said she had had an on again, off again romantic relationship with Henry Matos.
Moises Matos said the woman jumped from the car when Henry Matos told her to leave his home, while Henry Matos said she bolted from the vehicle while arguing with Moises, according to the report.
The alleged victim, Glenda Rivera, is connected to tubes at Tufts Medical Center but is expected to survive, Grimes wrote.
The incident remains under investigation by the Essex District Attorney’s Office.
